1/2 Photos: 100% Wrong.

This one goes out to all you social networkers who have profile pictures featuring fractional friends: dates who have left the scene, your buddy Todd who was drunk and looked like a fool, or Sylvia and her enormous mole.

These pictures are awkward because it's never clear who's there (or not there), why you're excluding them, and why you just don't have another decent picture of yourself you could use instead. If you have no other option than to use that picture where you totally looked like Stallone before he was about to kill 1,000 ninjas, at least photoshop it with the magnetic lasso tool so you don't disrespect Flo and Reggie, who had just bought you a mojito and drove your drunk ass home later that night.

Lay off the crop tool and tighten up.

Thanks for the reminder that nothing is too minor to tighten up. This has always been a pet peeve of mine and I'm glad to know I am not alone.

also guilty as charged. but some of us really do have a hard time finding decent pictures of ourselves! and cropping is about as far as my photo-editing skills go. therefore, the half photos stay. sorry, pepper, but i kindly decline your request to tighten up.
